A Rolling Stones new album before the end of 2016?
Talking at the opening of the new Rolling Stones' Exhibitionism in London, guitarist Wood said that the band intend to put new music out in 2016 and revealed the group are on a "blues streak" after covering standards by the likes of Howlin’ Wolf and Little Walter.
Wood broke news that The Rolling Stones would begin recording a new album in December last year (2015). "We’ll maybe go in the studio in December and cut a few tracks and see what happens," Wood was quoted as saying at the time. "We’ll take it from there, see how it all goes. One thing at a time."
"They really sound authentic,” Wood is quoted as saying about the new songs. "We went in to cut some new songs, which we did. But we got on a blues streak. We cut 11 blues in two days… When we heard them back after not hearing them for a couple of months, we were, ‘Who’s that?’ ‘It’s you.’ It sounded so authentic."
The Rolling Stones released their most recent album 'A Bigger Bang' in 2005.
